You need to do a partial rebuild of the carb. Pull it off and put at least the needle and seat in it and also I strongly suggest a float.

I have 1982 ford f150 with a 351windsor in it, the stock venturi 2bbl carb is leaking, what type of carb would fit the manifold without changing it? Also is the distributor supposed to be able to turn when...


Edelbrock and Carter both make 2 bbl. carbs for 351W. that will fit stock intake.
Distributor should not turn on it's own. Only with the engine running

Stock carb or weber 2 barrel whats going to best for mpg this is a daily driver 258 6cyl would like to get close to 17mpg


i would go with the weber.this is why.

Weber - This is probably the most common carb conversion for the 6 cyl Jeeps. The Weber is a very reliable, all mechanical carb that improves performance and drivability. The Weber is designed to supply the proper amount of fuel determined by the demand put on the engine. When demands are small, only the primary barrel is used, and when demands increase, the second barrel is used in to deliver the performance needed. Use of thie carb allows removal of all the electronics associated with the BBD. The 32/36 DGEV model claims 18% hp increase over the stock factory carb as well as 10-20% fuel economy increase. The 38 DGEV model is designed for higher power applications where headers, cam, and aftermarket intake manifold are used. $$

I have a newly rebuilt engine (289, 4bl) with a Demon carburetor (Road Demon Jr. / 525 cfm). The engine idles, and at strong acceleration runs fine. When I try to moderately accelerate or try to maintain...


Your problem would be in the power valve/accelerator pump circuit. This is the circuit that feeds gas to the engine when the changeover from idle to driving occurs.At idle the vacuum in the carb draws gas so no mechanical means of delivering fuel is needed. The same is true when you reach a consistant driving speed.During the changeover you need a way to increase fuel to the engine by mechanical means. Some carbs have an accelerator pump some call it a power valve. The changes in your intake and cam are enough so the stock circuit is unable to compensate properly. The dealer for the carb should be able to help you out with parts to increase the flow and rate of flow. Hope this helps.

How do i install a tri power on a 1966 pontiac gto?


first you will need a tri power intake manifold, and then the correct carbs. its just like you were replacing a intake manifold gasket. its not a big job, but you need to know what your are doing, and then tuning them is another job, you can by tri power setups ready to bolt on from several companies.

1954 CORVETTE,3 CARTER YH CARBS, SET FLOATS @ 3/8 '' with a 2'' drop to bottom of float. Engine runs fine, but carbs leak gas freely upon shutting engine ''off''. Why? and how can this be fixed?


Check the needle and seat in the carbs, sounds as if the needle is not seating allowing gas to flow till pressure in the lines drop. Since bowl is full the gas will force its way out any place it can. Usually a gasket. Good luck!! Hope I gave you an idea of where to look.

There is no difference in intakes on how they bolt on, both intakes bolt on the same, just make sure you use new gasgets, and also use red silacone on each end insted of the rubber gasgets they supply with the gasget kit so you get a better seal.

New rebilt carter yfa installed, but idle at 3k all adjustment screws backed out, ? the 2.5 L 4 cylinder came from P O with a jury rigged rochester carb of 77 ford vintage, hard to start so I got the...


The 2.5 L engine is the Pontiac Iron Duke sourced from GM since it was still AMC. They came with Rochester carbs, while Ford used Holley 2 brls on their 4 cyl engines and Chrysler used Carter carbs. You might have the wrong carb and the throttle plates are sticking on the intake manifold. You can try using a carb adapter/spacer. If you drive off road I would suggest buying a TBI throttle body injection system from a junkyard, and pick up a electirc fuel pump. Either new from a speed shop or used from a newer Jeep with a 2.5 L TBI engine, you'll need the computer, harness, relay, sending unit and lines as well. But you can pick up everything at a pick your part yard for cheap (some yards have all you can carry in your hands for $50 days).

Strong order of gas fumes and black residue on spark plugs


The jets in the carb are too big for a 302 with a stock cam. Take it to a carb shop and have them replace the jets with stock jets. (Or DIY and hope). Whne you converted from FI to carb did you replace fuel pump to get correct 7 1/2 psi pressure at carb inlet? FI pumps put out 50+ psi and a regulator maintians pressure at the injectors on the order of 35 psi.. Of course, that much pressure would force inlet needle valve out of it's seat and would probably flood carb totally, but, check the fuel pressure at the carb just to be sure. Good luck. 302's rule!!!!
PS - Check cam specs - FI engine has different cam - intake duration is longer if I remember correctly. Been a while since I got inside an engine...
